I cannot believe that in just one short week from today Rachel Vincent’s WITH ALL MY SOUL, the final book in her Soul Screamers series, will be releasing. As excited as I am for it to hit the shelves – both physical and electronic – I am so very sad that it will officially mark the end of this amazing series.
Yes, I’ve already read it, and I know exactly how things end. But because its release was still forthcoming, it felt very much like maybe, just maybe it wasn’t over. And yes, I am still holding out hope that there will be another novella or two in the series… sort of a “where are they now” story that will give us just another peek into the characters’ lives and into this amazing world the author has so brilliantly crafted over the past few years.
And yes, I’m also sad that this will be my last reading challenge as pertains to the Soul Screamers series. But we’ve reached the final sin and unless “they” determine there are a few more sins of that calibre, it’s likely this series won’t be resurrected. Of course, I am ever hopeful.
I know that WITH ALL MY SOUL won’t be releasing until next week… but when I decided to host this challenge the release date was listed as March 19th. And I decided not to change the date as it’s also very likely that a few readers might have been able to get their hands on it prior to its release. To my knowledge, WITH ALL MY SOUL has not been embargoed.

The giveaway associated with that post has closed, but there is a giveaway for those challenge participants who read WTIH ALL MY SOUL and link their reviews and/or book thoughts posts in the Linky List below.
You have until APRIL 30th, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific to read it, review it and leave your link to be entered into the giveaway.
There is no minimum or maximum length required for your review. Nor does your review have to be in English. And there is no set format for how you choose to review. However, it has to be clear enough to anyone who reads it that the book has actually been read. I do check out all reviews for challenge participants!
AND, if there are going to be spoilers for the book in your review, PLEASE state that in the Linky List entry below.
Good luck to everyone! While the challenge might not seem that challenging, saying goodbye to a well-loved series and its characters is HARD! So I completely understand those who might have already signed up but just can’t take that next step.
But… this just means that now the author, Rachel Vincent, can create new characters for us to love, hate, angst over, suffer along with. Of course, if you’re like me, and you also have taken that journey with her characters in the Unbound series, you’ll have one more goodbye to say before being able to say hello to her next endeavor.
What does it mean when your school is voted the most dangerous in America? It’s time to kick some hellion butt…After not really surviving her junior year (does “undead” count as survival?), Kaylee Cavanaugh has vowed to take back her school from the hellions causing all the trouble. She’s going to find a way to turn the incarnations of Avarice, Envy and Vanity against one another in order to protect her friends and finish this war, once and forever.
But then she meets Wrath and understands that she’s closer to the edge than she’s ever been. And when one more person close to her is taken, Kaylee realizes she can’t save everyone she loves without risking everything she has….
As this is the final book in the series and those who are participating in the challenge will already have read the previous books in the series, I can’t very well offer up a Soul Screamers book.
To the winner of the challenge I’m offering up $50 in Books of Your Choice from Amazon or The Book Depository.
And to the runner-up I’m offering $25 in Books of Your Choice from Amazon or The Book Depository.
Since the final day of the challenge is the release date for Rachel Vincent’s OATH BOUND, the final book in her Unbound series…
